This trail begins with the same climb as the Whakaipo Bay Headland trail but once at the saddle where the headland trail turns right the W2K continues east and descends towards Whakaipo Bay. You will be greeted with magnificent views of Lake Taupo and later Whakaipo Bay. The descent is so sweet and flowing. Potentially a very fast ribbon of dirt.

This is a shorter version of the other 2 trails. Nice smooth and fun riding with a climb to the lookout with magnificent views down the lake to the mountains of Tongariro National Park and south west to the bays and native bush surrounding Lake Taupo. Then it’s a beautiful flowing descent down to Kawakawa Bay for a well-earned rest.
